- The Phantoms' introduction in the Rise Of The Phantoms chapter, Animal Jam Insider's Guide

The Phantoms are the first and only major antagonists in Jamaa. For unknown reasons, they terrorize the world they were born into. It is also unknown where they came from. Phantoms first made their actual appearance on Jamaa's first Night Of The Phantoms; before then they were only mentioned from Animal Jam Headquarters, AJHQ for short, of being the upcoming villain.


Phantoms come in a variety of shapes and sizes with a few common features. They are usually a pitch black, circular blob with a single, large white eye that has a small black pupil. Phantoms also tend to have tentacles that stick out from different sides of their body.

Normal Phantoms

These are slightly small creatures with six or more tentacles. When approached by an animal, they produce a blue-white electric arc in an attempt to shock the animal.


These are much smaller than regular Phantoms, only being the size of Pets. Instead of regular tentacle, they have a small black circle on the side of their head. When approached by an animal, they become scared and attempt to flee.

Phantom Kings

Phantom Kings are much bigger than regular Phantoms. They have violet-purple round spots around the bottom half of the body and a cracked-looking set of spikes on the head, like a crown. When approached by an animal, they float up into the air and slam back down into the ground in an attempt to stun the animal.

Phantom Goops

These appear to be large, slug-like goop piles with violet-purple outskirts. They have one large eye in the middle which is followed by three much smaller eyes.

Phantom Coral

The Phantom Coral is an unusual type of phantom that consists of a blob with many sharp spikes in an irregular shape. When touched by an animal, it will produce a white electric arc in an attempt to shock the animal.


Phantoms are very antagonistic, menacing, aggressive and savage. The only thing they know is to destroy nature itself, giving them a reputation of being sadistic and cruel. It is unknown why they are this way.

Proto-phantoms are different as they run away and cry, while normal phantoms will attack the player.


According to the legend from the Beta Testing, it was Mira who made the very first Phantoms from her tears. However Animal Jam Headquarters has since changed this, currently saying that the Phantoms came from a foreign world and could have evolved from there. Modern Phantoms are now spawned from Phantom Sprouters, Phantom Pods, and even Phantom Kings. According to Greely, King Phantom is a male and this is why he can breed. Later on, it was revealed in Bitter Sweets that the Phantoms are using candy to reproduce. It's unknown how they managed to do this.


According to the new legend, Phantoms first appeared through Dark Portals from their own world during the time where Jammers fought with each other. It is unknown why they came to Jamaa, but they seem to want to destroy it. Phantoms started to steal the animal's Heartstones, which caused the animal species to be trapped inside. They took all the Heartstones until there were only six animals left (Pandas, Koalas, Monkeys, Bunnies, Tigers and Wolves). The six remaining animals then started to gather and start an army to fight against the Phantoms. Later, after Mira and Zios' travels to look for help, the Alphas came and helped with the military after being chosen by Mira and Zios to do so. When the Phantoms were defeated and started to flee, they defeated and kidnapped Zios, leaving behind his mask, and went into a Dark Portal. Mira followed them quickly into the portal as well. It is unknown what the Phantoms have done with the two guardian spirits.


Return of the Phantoms: They first appear in the Return of the Phantoms, where they terrorize a Bunny village by destroying their crops and kidnapping the villagers.

The Phantom Portal: They appear in The Phantom Portal, where they try to get one of the Phantom Kings into the main land of Jamaa by bringing it in through a portal-gate.

Meet Cosmo: After that in the Meet Cosmo adventure, they terrorize a field where the Koalas live and kidnapping them. Their goal was unknown in this adventure; possibly, it was just to have fun by locking up the field's inhabitants.

The Hive: In The Hive, the Player enters one of their bases. At the end a Phantom King appears to try get rid of the Player.

The Great Escape: In The Great Escape, they have taken over the Great Tower and are quite happy to take the Player as a prisoner. In the end it is discovered by Greely that they plan to use a volcano to destroy Jamaa.

Greely's Inferno: The next adventure, they go ahead with the plan on destroying Jamaa only to be stopped by both Greely and the Player.

The Search For Greely: They are seen when the Player enters the Phantom Vortex while trying to stop the Player from rescuing Greely.

Bubble Trouble: In Bubble Trouble they seem to be making a factory of some sort; believed to be a factory to produce more Phantoms.

In Too Deep: They seem angry when the Player starts to destroy their factory. And it is discovered that they have captured the Dolphin Alpha Tavie.

Turning The Tide: The Phantoms try to prevent anyone from rescuing Tavie and they have easily captured the Bottlenose Squad. Near the end, many of them are defeated by both the Player and the Bottlenose Squad.


The Phantoms appear in all types of games in Jamaa. Mostly being the villain of them all. They appear in games such as Falling Phantoms, Wind Rider, Fruit Slinger and Hedge Hog. They also appear in all the Summer Carnival games as targets.

Side Games

They briefly appear at the start of Tunnel Town in the short animated video. The group of Phantoms try to kidnap a female Bunny but was stopped by the bunny's supposed lover. The biggest Phantom of the group creates a portal where the male bunny is teleported to another dimension. It is unknown if Phantoms can do this on the main game. They also appear in AJ Jump where they try to prevent the Player from going higher by striking them with their electricity.


There are a number of phantom-themed items that can be purchased. Many of these items are seasonal and available only during the Night of the Phantoms, but some others can be purchased year-round.


Phantom-themed costumes allow Jammers to dress up as a Phantom.

Trapped Phantoms

Despite their tendency to electrocute innocent Jammers, Phantoms are actually sold in Jamaa. They come in a variety of cages, crates, pens, and cells but they are always animated. Each Phantom is securely locked up, so that they may not escape.

Phantom Statues


  • Occasionally, Phantom electricity comes in colors. The original electricity was blue, then changed to red, then again to purple. More colors were shown on items such as green, pink and yellow.
  • The meaning of "Phantom" is Ghost. This is understandable because of their ghostly behavior and movement.
  • At the Summer Carnival, you can get cotton candy shaped as a Phantom by choosing black cotton candy, followed by white cotton candy, then black cotton candy again.
  • During the Night Of The Phantoms the Mira's Statue is replaced by a giant red Tall Phantom Statue.
  • Night Of The Phantoms, go to the forest and dance around the fire. Something may happen. (Yes, something does happen.)
  • Some believe that phantoms were born from Mira's tears when she was grieving about the death of zios.
